Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake is a beautiful, deliciously moist, and flavorful sheet pan cake. This is not an overly sweet cake thanks to the tangy yogurt. In fact, it’s more like a muffin and great with coffee for breakfast.

Sometimes, you just need a simple, easy cake that will knock your socks off with flavor. This is that cake. There’s not trimming the hump off the middle or aligning layers. You simply pour the batter into a 9×13-inch baking pan and wait for the timer to expire!

Another bonus to sheet cakes, they travel great for potlucks and picnics. As well, this cake holds together like a brownie so it doesn’t require utensils.

This cake also takes advantage of the sweetest, juiciest produce of spring, strawberries! As well, it has a pound cake-like texture with bursts of sweet, fresh strawberries in every bite.

I chose to top it with a thin layer of glaze. The cake has such a wonderful taste and texture, I didn’t want to hide it under a lot of sweet frosting.

I used butter and coconut oil in this cake. I love the flavored butter gives cakes, but I find coconut oil keeps them moist longer. Combining both gives me the best of both.

 I also used Greek yogurt; it gives much the same flavor and texture to a cake that buttermilk or sour cream does. When you’re out of both (ahem) it makes for a great substitution. Greek yogurt, sour cream, and buttermilk all give cakes a tender, soft texture.

This strawberry cake would be beautiful decorated with edible roses for a spring shower or party!

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick spray.
  • Toss the strawberries in ¼ cup flour. Set aside.
  • Sift together 2 and 1/4 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the lemon zest.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, coconut oil, and sugar until light and fluffy. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides.
  • Add the eggs one at a time. Beat until mixture is creamy and fluffy for about 2 minutes at medium speed. Stop the mixer at about 1 minute and scrape the sides.
  • Add the lemon juice.
  • Next, add flour mixture alternately with the yogurt, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in the strawberries by hand. Never overmix a cake after adding the flour or it will be tough.
  • Pour batter into pan and smooth the top.
  • Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Whisk powdered sugar, heavy cream, and food coloring together until smooth. This glaze needs to be thin and pourable. Add more heavy cream if needed. Pour over warm cake.
  • Garnish with strawberries and mint if desired.

  1. Could you use rhubarb in this cake? OR in any of the pound cakes? Never made to many of these but would like to and I have rhubarb ready to pick it sounds good but want to make sure it will work considering it is rhubarb. Thanks
